Ultimate Meatloaf

Barbara Eaton


The original recipe was given to me by my mother. She got it from a community cookbook and it was called Bishop Sheen's Meatloaf. I, of course, couldn't leave it alone and made some "adjustments" of my own. I am very pleased with the results. From good bases come great dishes. This also makes great sandwiches the next day.
